  1. Hi Glenn – Thanks for dropping by and I’m glad I’m able to bring back some memories for you. I will definitely come by your blog too!

    Hi Sharon – Thanks. The selection of these incense burners is amazing here. All sizes, shapes, materials, designs.

  2. A very interesting site Susie. I used to live in Riyadh back in the 80s…when I was a child. Spent a fascinating 6 years there. Sure brings back the memories looking at your blog.

    Am now living in the beautiful Polish city of Toruń (check out TORUŃ DAILY PHOTO!).

    See you there!

  3. Hi Elaine, Marahm, and JM! Thanks for your comments. I like the comparison to the gifts the Three Kings came bearing. The incense burners here are real works of art.

    They surely are very eye-catching being all together!

    Oh, these are fancy, indeed! I like the one in the foreground, the small brown one.

    It brings to mind the three kings from the east, bearing gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
